Federated Mountain Clubs (FMC), founded in 1931, represents over 80 clubs, 20,000 members and 300,000 people that regularly recreate in our backcountry. Thier members explore New Zealand by foot, bike, canoe and kayak, seeking beauty, challenge and friendship. Each year they elect an FMC Executive to encourage and protect these opportunities.
FMC balances their different roles in the community. By celebrating outdoor recreation and the natural environment they build our standing for when we must advocate against the ideas of others that we think unwise.
